What is Pink Grapefruit Peel Oil?

If you’re thinking that pink grapefruit peel oil is oil derived from the peel of a pink grapefruit, you would be bang on the money! Usually extracted via a method called cold pressing, it’s basically the fibers of the peel that are separated from the fruit and made into oil. Think of that the next time you find yourself throwing out a grapefruit peel!

And if you’ve ever wondered what produces that beautiful scent, it’s something called limonene, which makes up most of a grapefruit.
